After a full day of foolishness, Chris Brown has been arrested.
The 27-year-old singer was charged with suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly threatening a woman, Baylee Curran, with a gun at his residence early Tuesday morning.
Via the LA Times:
Curran said she and a friend had gone to Brown’s home with a business associate, who was invited by the musician. She wanted to talk to Brown about future projects, she said.
When she went inside, a handful of people was milling about and chatting, Curran said.
Curran said she eventually went to Brown’s backyard to get some fresh air. Her confrontation with the musician erupted soon after she walked back into the house, she said.
A man was showcasing diamond bracelets, necklaces and watches inside the home, she said. Curran said she began to admire a diamond cross necklace.
“I don’t know if it was Chris’ friend or how he was related, but that’s when he told me to back away from the diamond necklace and started cussing me out and calling me names,” she said. “That’s when Chris pulled his gun and told me to ‘Get out.’ He said ‘I’m sick of you girls, get the F out!’”
Curran said she ran outside with her friend when Brown pointed the gun at her face. But she was forced to wait by the home’s front gate until Brown’s associates retrieved her phone — which she had to hand over as a condition of going inside the home, she said. When an associate arrived with Curran’s phone, he said he’d only give it back to her if she signed a non-disclosure agreement, she said.
Curran said she refused, snatched her phone from the man’s hand and ran away. The man ran to a Jeep to give chase, but Curran and her friend made it to a neighbor’s property and hid under an SUV parked outside when the Jeep drove by, Curran said. Brown’s neighbor called police.
